On November 4, 2008, the election of Barack Hussein Obama as the forty-fourth president of the United States showed that the country had finally overcome its most hurtful, shameful, and enduring legacy—slavery. Though Obama's election showed progress, the John McCain–Sarah Palin campaign and the Republican Party used age-old smear campaign tactics. Their operators pulled out all the stops in an attempt to win and spread falsehoods about Obama that have only multiplied after the election. The Obama Haters seeks to answer the following questions: Who are these Obama haters? Why do they despise him? Why do various news organizations, commentators, and political entities treat the same facts differently? Why are these pundits so powerful? In order to do so, Wright first lays out the democratic principles and civility toward which Americans should strive. Next, he investigates the persistent expressions of hatred for President Obama, connecting historic antecedents of political mudslinging along with the background of virulent right-wing smear tactics over the past two decades. And finally, he shines a harsh spotlight on the haters and fearmongers and their tactics. While Americans have the right to criticize their political leadership, their reasons for disapproval should be based on facts. Those who invent and repeat lies to hurt the reputation of leaders weaken the democratic ideal. This book is for anyone who wishes to learn how to cut through the hypocrisy and propaganda to make informed decisions based on truth.

This book is the first in-depth examination of the 25 million Americans with the most intense hatred of President Obama—arguably the most Republican-friendly of recent Democratic presidents—and what the mindsets of these "Obama Haters" teach us about race and ethnicity in America today. • Offers a critique of Obama from the left on his health insurance reform, judicial and political appointments, civil liberties policies, educational reforms, and strategy for dealing with African American concerns • Presents hard data showing that Obama Haters are so extreme in their conservatism and in their anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, and anti-black attitudes that in comparison, Tea Party supporters appear to be moderate • Boldly identifies strategies for dealing with white racial anxiety about a diversifying America • Provides empirically derived estimates of the percentage of the American public with strong anti-black, anti-Latino, anti-immigrant, and anti-Muslim attitudes

Le président américain fascine. Ses faits et gestes, ses mots et ses silences sont scrutés. Il est le représentant en chef du rêve américain. Dans son corps se joue la confrontation de ce rêve à la réalité. A chaque instant, en campagne comme à la Maison-Blanche, il doit incarner la nation américaine, embrasser ses valeurs, les magnifier. Cet essai nous plonge dans la présidence américaine depuis le début du XXe siècle. Il montre à quel point candidats et présidents ont usé et abusé de leur corps et de son image. Comment des destins se sont brisés, faute d'avoir su incarner les valeurs américaines. Et comment la confusion entre corps naturel et corps politique a mis (et met encore) la démocratie américaine en danger. Un livre indispensable pour décrypter les campagnes présidentielles américaines jusqu'à l'élection et le bilan de Donald Trump à mi-mandat.

Esta obra tiene por objetivo reconstruir “la historia del gobierno estadunidense desde sus democráticos, liberales y federales inicios en el siglo xviii hasta el Leviatán en que se convirtió en el siglo xxi”, además de analizar detalladamente, de manera diacrónica, cómo ha implementado el gobierno estadunidense las tres estrategias con las que se ha instaurado como un Estado central: exención, sustitución y privatización. Se divide en cuatro secciones en las que se estudia, respectivamente, el surgimiento y consolidación del modelo republicano (1780-1860), el paso a las estrategias de improvisación y regulación (1860-1920), la lucha popular por transformar el gobierno central (1920-1940) y, finalmente, la figura del gobierno estadunidense como Estado central “grande y poderoso”, producto de la Guerra Fría (1940-2010), además de una evaluación final de la administración de Barack Obama.

Innenansichten eines Unrechtssystems. Der soeben aus der Lagerhaft entlassen Michail Chodorkowski schreibt bewegende Portraits seiner Mitgefangenen – und entlarvt das verrottete System der russischen Justiz. Nach über zehn Jahren Inhaftierung kennt Michail Chodorkowski, einst reichster Mann Russlands, das korrupte System der russischen Justiz von innen. In Meine Mitgefangenen porträtiert er Mithäftlinge, die er in den Straf lagern Sibiriens und Kareliens kennenlernte. Erniedrigte und Beleidigte, von einem korrupten System Weggeworfene und Verratene. Menschen, die aufgaben, und solche, die trotz allem ihre Würde bewahrten.Da ist Nikolai, wegen Drogenbesitz verhaftet, aber durch einen inoffiziellen Deal genötigt, eine zweite Straftat auf sich zu nehmen. Doch sich dazu bekennen, einer alten Frau die Handtasche weggenommen zu haben, will er um keinen Preis: einer Oma das Letzte wegnehmen, das würde er nie tun. Nur durch einen Selbstmordversuch kann er sich dem Schuldbekenntnis entziehen. Da ist Arkadi, ein Spitzel, der Neuankömmlinge in der Haftanstalt aushorcht und dafür kleine Vorteile bekommt. Da ist Sergej, der Sonderstatus genießt, weil er mit der Gefängnisleitung kooperiert, da sind gekaufte Zeugen und solche, die sich im entscheidenden Moment doch zur Wahrheit bekennen. Meine Mitgefangenen ist ein Buch über Menschen in extremen Situationen, über die Ruinen eines Systems, das Recht bringen sollte und ein Instrument der Macht geworden ist und ein Buch über Würde an einem Ort, an dem niemand sie vermutet.
